Here are two projects I finished earlier this week.  The bag is my first attempt at a bag. It came out alright.  The seams are very bulkly and some of the lines are uneven, but I am happy I pushed though it.






The yellow wallet took a few minutes and I ended up hand stitching the sides close with an overcast stitch.  The yellow flowered fabric on the inside is the same as the back/outside.

Thanks!

Do you have any tips for cutting fabric (mostly curves)?

Very pretty, I love the fabric. Cheesy  Great work for your first bag & wallet Cheesy For the cutting I pin my patterns a lot I know a lot of the gals on here use other means but I'm old school & for the curve maybe a upside down plate or something similar. Hope that helps.  Roll Eyes

Thank you all for the compliments!

Yeah with the actual curve part of the purse, I've found if I fold both the fabric and pattern in half pin the heck outta it and then cut it comes out fine.  I think my curve sewing needs some work though.

I might make a few more of the big red one to practice my curves but in an smaller wallet size.  That might be cute.

Say you have some good ideas!!  Wink Folding in half is good & pining too.  Also pressing helps too.  I'll be looking for your new smaller wallet in red!! Cheesy

You should also clip the curves once the seam is sewn. Cut into the seam allowance almost up to the seam along the curve line. It will make the seam lay smoother once it is turned inside out.
